Honoring Christ In Improv, Acting, And Presenting Scripture-Day 2

We have several actors presenting great talks over at MakeJesusCulture.com, Stephen Traphton among them, and the one thing they all seemed to have in common was the expression of the idea of incarnation: that an actor at his best understands, in a weird way, the work of the Son Jesus. Empathy – if this is truly a human act, an act of those who experience and participate in consciousness – mirrors the incarnation as a microcosm in each...

Honoring Christ In Forming Creative Community-Day 3

God is building his temple in us Today! We leave you to study today’s Scripture and keep some questions in mind. As you read, ask yourself, “am I more priestly, prophetly, or kingly in how I go about life?” The answer might surprise you, and it will give you some bearing on how God will now use you in the artistic community of the church. At our circles page (link below)you can even take the PPK assessment to help you understand how...

Honoring Christ In The Psalms-Day 1

Our Jesus, experienced the full spectrum of human experience and emotion while on earth. If we are to truly become “Christ-like,” we too are going to have to be equipped for all that life may bring. I believe it is the Psalms that prepare us with such a “strength of soul.” Each day in this study, we will ask you to explore a particular genre of poetic writing in the Psalms. We will ask for you to fellowship with the Lord in prayer...

Honoring Christ in Our Home-Day 1

The Meal and Home In the first three centuries, largely up until the time that Constantine politicalized Christianity as the state religion, the whole of the Christian worship service (the gathering) was referred to as “the Lord’s Supper.” It wasn’t a wafer and a sip from a plastic throwaway cup that was in Paul’s mind in 1 Corinthians 10:17-34, when he spoke of the Supper. The context of Paul’s argument in 1 Corinthians clearly is...

Worship in the Home Pt. 2

The Opportunity of the Home In Part 1 of our series on worship in the home, we introduced a little word known as paideia. We didn’t really go into much detail about the word (This was intentional), but today we will look at this term a bit more deeply, and we will continue to press it out over the weeks to come.  What the heck does this word mean anyway? We know in the Greco-Roman model of education, paideia was a cultural...

Worship in the Home Pt. 1

A new series from WMC and GCP. Following our Worship Leader Starts @ home. Today we’re beginning a series on what it means to worship and follow Christ in our homes. When I read material written on modern “Worship-Topics” these days, I find 80% of material is primarily framed and formulated for the context of the gathered church in a “building” or “organized service” of some sort. It is also framed around the idea of “Worship...

Reconsidering Why We Sing, Part 1: For The Mind, Body and Soul

Part 1  |  For the Mind, Body and Soul By Dave Yauk Songs are important to us!  They not only have the power to equip us for a good car ride but they rise to even higher levels of influence. Songs like My Generation, written by The Who, came to define actual points in history.  Jimi Hendrix defined a time period with All Along the Watchtower.  Fast forward into today with U2’s With or Without You, and again we find that a song’s...

Helping Your Church Navigate Change

“Annie Hawks would be turning over in her grave if she heard that song!” This was the very passionate statement said to me after church one Sunday. We had just done the Matt Maher / Christy Nockles song, “Lord, I Need You”. The song is largely based and/or inspired by the hymn “I Need Thee Every Hour” written by Annie Hawks. And on this particular Sunday, the song was close enough but different...

WMC-0158 – What To Do When People Walk Away From The Church

What To Do When People Walk Away From The Church   We live in a time where it is becoming more and more likely that people are leaving our churches. Not all churches, but a lot of them. Chances are, you know someone(s) who has left the church behind. Maybe they were wounded. Maybe they weren’t. Maybe they’re being selfish. Maybe they’re just tired. Maybe They’re burnt out. Who knows. The question is, what...

More Thoughts On Change… In the last episode of the podcast, Kevin & I talked about change.

In this episode, we talk about the bigger change we are all dealing with. We live in a time when things are changing very fast. It’s hard to keep up with everything that’s...
